The WYC operates under the guidelines of sincerity and service in order to generate feelings of trust, responsibility, and community membership between the staff, volunteers and homeless youth.
The WYC serves the basic and immediate needs of homeless and at-risk youth in a safe and friendly atmosphere with the aim to foster positive change and growth.
Program and Practice
Based on a Freirean model of affecting positive social change and personal liberation, the WYC employs the three aspects of praxis - theory, action, and reflection - with a vision toward social justice in order to prevent and ultimately end youth homelessness.
Our Core Values
The WYC prides itself on our six Core Values: dignity, safety, service, open communication, honesty, and trust.
